          Renew your items yourself from the MORE online catalog.

          Renew using the Automated Telephone Renewal Service by calling toll-free 1-866-697-3639 or 1-866-MYRENEW.

                        Have your library card ready and the last four digits of the item(s) you wish to renew.

                        You may renew selected items or “renew all”. Stay on the line! If you choose to renew all of your items,

                        each item must be acknowledged with the new due date by the Automated voice. If you hang up before

Overdue Materials

 

     Fines:

          Books, audiobooks, music cd, kits, and magazines:  $0.10 per day for each day they are overdue

         (As of June 2010, movies owned by the Luck Library are only $0.25 per day)

          Fine policies may vary at individual libraries.  Several libraries have additional processing fees for damaged or lost items.

          Library items returned to the Luck Library after business hours on the day they are due will be checked in on the next business day and will

          incur the corresponding fine.  Overdue fines can be paid with check or cash at the Luck Library.  Fine payments can also be made online through the

      Lost or damaged items:

           Replacement costs of lost/damaged materials must be paid to the library that owned the item.  Checks  must  be made out and sent to the   

           owning library by the patron.  Payments can also be made online through the MORE website.  The Luck library no longer accepts payment for  

           replacement items from other libraries.  This applies only to Replacement fines and not Overdue fines, which are still collected at the Luck                  

           Library for items from other libraries.

 

     Blocks on patron accounts:

          When fines exceed $10.00 in a patrons account, a block will be placed on the account. 

          Once the account is blocked, all library priviliges will be suspended until the amount is brought below $10.00.

                  These privileges include checking out any library materials, renewing materials, participating in the Thursday

                  Wii gaming room, and using the public access computers.
